Good news, folks! You will soon be able to connect your phones, tablets, and ultrabooks to an external monitor or TV using nothing more than the USB port. All you’ll need is a simple cable that connects USB-C to HDMI.

HDMI Licensing, the consortium that controls and licenses the HDMI specification, recently announced a new standard called the HDMI Alternate Mode (also known as Alt Mode). This allows any device with a USB Type-C port to output pictures to any HDMI display using the proper cable — no dongles or adapters needed. In other words, USB-C cables will be able to carry HDMI signals.
